We're approaching two years since Daniel Craig's final outing as 007 was released in cinemas, and we're still no closer to knowing which actor is in line to replace him as the most iconic spy in fiction.


But while we wait to find out what the future holds, it's never a bad time to reflect on the history of the incredible franchise stemming from Ian Fleming's novels – especially given we recently celebrated the 70th anniversary of the publication of the first book Casino Royale.

With that in mind, we've devised a James Bond pub quiz – themed around 30 fiendishly difficult questions related to 007.

All questions and answers are below – from RadioTimes.com with love...

And once you're done, why not try our TV quiz, film quiz, music quiz or sport quiz for size? Plus there's many, many more pub quizzes available as part of our bumper general knowledge pub quiz.
